Not specified

Hida Mountains

4 Days

Jun - Oct



Hakuba Sanzan, or Hakuba Three Mounts, is a term to indicate three mountains in the area. They are Mount Hakuba (2932m), Mount Shaku (2812m) and Mount Shirouma Yari (2903m). And we find them within the Chubu Mountains National Park.

We will meet at Hakuba village, at the foot of the North Alps at Nagano prefecture. Many climbers visit Hakuba in the summer, and skiers also go there in the winter.

Thehike starts at the Tsubaike Nature Park, via the ridge of Mount Korenge. We will have magnificent views of Ushiro Tateyama mountains. Then we will traverse the three mountains that together form Hakuba Sanzan. After summiting them, we will descend through Tsugaike Nature Park, via the Takayama lake and Hakuba Ooike, above the clouds.

In addition, you will be able to enjoy the Shirouma Yari hot springs. We can also go to Hakuba-yari Onsen, one of Japan’s leading high altitude hot springs. Another option is Renge Onsen at the foot of the north side of Hakuba Ooike.

And the alpine flora is extremely abundant and varied. In fact, as some areas covered by flowers are usually above the clouds in Oodeppara, this area is known as the paradise above the clouds.

The charm of this tour is that in a small group we can do a ridge traverse overlooking the Hakuba mountains. I think that you will truly appreciate Hakuba during this tour.

What people are saying about Japan



Fantastic region, perfect guide !



Just back from Hakuba –Japan and I’m so pleased to confirm we got such a great experience with Iwao who has provided a service above all expectations. Indeed assisting a family confronted to a new environment requires a certain level of patience and attention and all the family appreciated his sense of responsibilities and seriousness which allowed us to really enjoy this region by experiencing touring, hicking and of course skiing in immaculate powder. Iwao was very discreet but always acted to ensure we could take the best of all Hakuba mountains could offer to us during these 5 days.This experience will for sure remain in all our minds for long and this will be mainly thanks to Iwao ! Best, Arnaud



We had a wonderfull ski touring trip with Iwao in Gunma. Iwao brought us in various beautifull landscapes to found very good spring snow. He is a very professional guide that can adapt to clients will and conditions! We had great time sharing our experiences about nature and mountains. The second day, we had a long tour with beautiful views on gunma's region and finissing along a river in an amazing forest. It was great fun to wait the last train in the midel of nowhere at sunset to come back to our village! Iwao has perfectly organised the trip bringing me to nice local onsen, restaurant and hôtel! Wonderfull trip to recommand!
